BMI: Emerging Writers Series - Amaranth Borsuk

When: Apr. 16, 2013, 7pm - 8:30pm
Campus Location: Greenspun Hall
Office/Remote Location: Auditorium

The Black Mountain Institute welcomes poet and scholar, Amaranth Borsuk’s to talk at the Emerging Writers Series. Borsuk's work focuses on textual materiality—from the surface of the page to the surface of language. She is the author of a book of poems, Handiwork, winner of the 2011 Slope Editions Poetry Prize; a chapbook, Tonal Saw; and, with Brad Bouse, the hybrid digital/print artist’s book Between Page and Screen, which contains abstract geometric patterns instead of text—patterns that reveal themselves as poetic love letters only with the aid of a webcam. Borsuk is the 2011 recipient of the Gulf Coast Poetry Prize and is currently a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at MIT. In addition to teaching creative writing and digital poetry, she is at work on a monograph about technological mediation in the work of modernist and contemporary poets.

Reception at 6 p.m. | Reading at 7 p.m.

The Emerging Writers Series is made possible by a grant from Nevada Humanities.
